Description: Walking many miles to school in the dusty road, young Coretta knew, too well, the unfairness of life in the segregated south.

A yearning for equality began to grow.
Together with Martin Luther King, Jr., she gave birth to a vision and a journey-with dreams of freedom for all.
This extraordinary union of poetic text by Ntozake Shange and monumental artwork by Kadir Nelson captures the movement for civil rights in the United States and honors its most elegant inspiration, Coretta Scott. (32 pgs) Ages 9-12

Ashay says, "I just gotta say right now, it’s about time. Thank you Kadir and Ntozake for blessing us with this treasure to remind of the beauty and grace of Coretta Scott King. And always we are reminded that Martin could not have accomplished what he diid without this great woman by his side. Beautiful art and a wonderful story, which gives us a glimpse into the racism she experienced as a child growing up in the South. Get it for the classroom. Teach!"
